You are welcome!

Yes, learn those notes! That's a necessary part of learning that you will use for as long as you play guitar.

They are pretty advanced. I just wanted you to see how important it is & will be to learn those chord tones. It can & should be done at the beginner levels, but even when you get to more advanced levels it's still the same concept, just more expanded.

So, I don't expect you to work through those right away! :) I just wanted you to see that it is important to start learning notes & chord tones, because it is the way forward.

About which triad inversion to adopt in improvisation, you're saying that there's not a rule, it's more like an art that you can handle the day that you know how every single triad sound. If it's so, i think that it'll be long time ;-)

Am i right?

Yes! The only rule you can follow is: what sound do I want here? And you can only answer that question if you know what sounds are possible. So, I'm not suggesting that you should know all of the sounds & triads right away. What I mean is that you start to learn them one at a time. Then keep learning more!

That way, eventually you build a library of licks. The more you learn & practice, the more sounds you know & the more choices you have of what to play.

Last but not the least....[br]your schemas about 1-4-5 progression notes given a root on E, A and other strings are very clear and mind-opening, i'd suggest to Lisa McCormick to integrate them into her fantastic beginner core courses (the ones i followed in order to learn playing guitar).

I'm glad that helped you!

You're English is fine. Much better than mine Italian.

Il meglio del successo! :)
